I'm sorry to disappear again after I said I was going to try to be better about blogging. But I had a good reason. The Papa is on his way out of this earthly world. His leukemia has reared it's ugly head. Between work and going to the hospital, I'm spent.
Today I tended to domestic chores and my sadly neglected garden. Boy, you can't let that thing get out of control! This is what I harvested this morning:
My tomatoes are going nutso. I am growing four varieties. The small cherry tomatoes are called sweet 100's and they are like eating candy! The larger cherries didn't have a tag on them to tell me the variety but they are really good too. I picked two small hot peppers (ya baby, there is salsa in my future), a green pepper and a zucchini. We had the zucchini with ranch dip for dinner. The larger tomatoes made an appearance in my lunch.
There is absolutely nothing better than a BLT with tomatoes fresh from the garden. I can hardly wait till I can grow lettuce again. It is still fairly hot here so I'll probably wait a week or two to plant the lettuce and spinach seeds. I want to totally revamp the garden (the zucchini and tomato plants have totally taken over). My basil is going gangbusters too so I'll probably make some pesto tomorrow. Yummo!
